Reviewed from notes taken about two weeks ago. Served at Springs Orleans in Colorado Springs. I first had this beer many, many years ago in Biloxi, MS and have had it off-and-on throughout these years.
Dark yet clear amber body with a very thin tan head. Nothing distinctive in the smell -- slightly sweet malt notes; no discernible hop presence. Taste came across roasty and nut-like with a slight bitterness. Light, clean, dry mouthfeel.
Served too cold which probably explains the lack of appreciable aroma. Flavor saves this beer, brings out a distinctiveness and decent taste. Served at a proper ale temp may bring about a better rating, but a good enough beer as presented. and liked it then. I'm sure the quality and potential for a more favorable impression remains; I'll have to review it served from a 12 oz bottle.
Serving type: on-tap
